A couple of questions about planned trip to Costa Rica

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are looking forward to spending a couple of weeks in Costa Rica soon. We are staying at Monteverde, Arenal and Manuel Antonio.

What is the best method of having money available to pay for meals, excursions and so forth? Cash (which I feel uncomfortable carrying large amounts), credit card, travel checks or a combination of cash & credit card?

Also I'm training for a half marathon and want to run but I realize the roads don't sound great and likely don't have shoulders to run on. What have others done to keep running other than a run on the beach?
Thanks!
